Fortnite and Star Wars are combining again on May 3rd

by on May 2, 2024

Epic Games has announced that Fortnite and Star Wars are teaming up again, bringing the space-epic back to the Fortnite ecosystem on May 3rd. It’s all in celebration of Star Wars day, and is part of version 29.40 for the game, but this time it’s bigger than ever.

Thanks to the way Fortnite now has multiple game modes within the game, the entire ecosystem will be affected by the Star Wars collaboration, as follows, from the official press release:

  • LEGO Fortnite: Rebel and Empire ships (including the iconic Star Destroyer) have crash-landed into LEGO Fortnite! Help the Rebels survive and build up their village, fight off the Empire with Lightsabers, craft new Star Wars items, explore new themed points of interest, and more – all on a new island that will remain in your world even after v29.40 ends. Complete Quests and progress through the LEGO Pass: Rebel Adventure to unlock free and premium in-game rewards like Builds and Decor from the Mos Eisley Set – including the Mos Eisley Cantina!
  • Battle Royale: Head to the new Camp landmark to rescue Chewbacca, who will support you in battle with his trusty Bowcaster – which you can also pick up from Imperial Chests at Stormtrooper roadblocks across the Island. New reward Quests and returning gameplay like the Darth Vader boss battle, Stormtrooper NPCs, E-11 Blasters, and more are available through May 14th in FNBR.
